Forum: etree Subject: Re: private messages

I think Diana is referring to the possibility that people would get spammed by spamming programs which would go through and use the feature maliciously.

We've discussed using other forum systems before, but it's not likely to happen. This forum system is custom tailored to the site's needs - others wouldn't integrate with our login system, allow placement wherever we want on pages, and couldn't be used as an annoucement system. Since the code is custom written, we can make it do whatever we want, so if you need a feature, request it (as you've done with the private messaging feature) and hopefully it'll get implemented down the line.
